After showing kindness to a strange old woman, Shiraz receives the gift of beauty but her lazy and unkind stepsister, Nargues, suffers a less pleasant fate in this adaptation of the Grimm's fairy tale, Mother Hulda, reset in Tehran, Iran.
"Shiraz does not think of herself as being brave, but when she drops her ball of red wool from the balcony, she knows she will need all of her courage if she is to retrieve it. For the ball of wool has landed in a neighbor's garden, and the person who owns the garden is very unusual--very unusual indeed."--P. [4] of cover.
